Flowers have a special ambiance that lends to their being included in virtually every significant event in our lives. From a new baby to a graduation or wedding, it is hard to imagine a celebration without them. When the time comes for a funeral, flowers are still an integral part of the memorial celebration of a loved one’s life – they signify hope and peace, and they bring comfort to grieving family members. Funeral flowers can take the form of casket sprays or urn garlands; as well as standing sprays or remembrance bouquets.
The personal funeral flowers, the ones used to adorn the casket or the urn, are generally selected and ordered by the immediate family of the deceased. It is not considered appropriate for a friend or extended family member to order these items. However, if you wish to take this burden from the family, it is imperative to inquire first to learn of their desires and wishes. While white flowers are traditionally symbolic of sympathy or grief, florals are available in a wide range of colors that may reflect the personality or favorite flowers of their loved ones.
When offering condolences, flowers beautifully speak the language of love and support. Sending a bouquet to those who are hurting can bring comfort and healing in a time that it is desperately needed. At Boyd’s, we have designed an extensive variety of fresh floral bouquets, featuring roses, lilies or hydrangea, that will bring an ambiance of serenity and hope to the grieving family. Send the bouquet direct to the funeral home, or have delivered to their private residence – whatever you choose, and wherever it is sent, the family will appreciate your heartfelt gesture.
